I heard about these pencils from a coloring group I belong to. These pencils go down on paper smoothly. I love the combination of coloring and drawing pencils. The variety of colored pencils is good. The variety of drawing pencils is excellent. I was so excited to get these and try them out. The case is beautiful and vet well made. I like how many pencils it holds. This case I believe will last for a long time. The colors are superstructure into groups like ask the metallics, etc are together. I enjoyed them so week that when I was able to get another set on sale I ordered another one even though I didn't need them yet. I Am amazed at how well they shade, blend, etc and just great to color with in general. I Highly recommend these. The draw back is that There are not more colored pencis and more colors. This set has a wonderful line of drawing pencils which I don't use as much so I wish there could have been moored colored pencils. With this ask being said. I Would still get these again.
I use many Strathmore products in my studio. The quality is reliable and never a bad choice for any illustration project from water colours to multi-media and beyond.
I got these for my great nieces with high hopes that they would like the paper. And that it would work with art supply set I got them as well. When I asked my nephew if the girls liked the paper for drawing. He said that they were ripping through their dinner - so that they could draw on it. Two thumbs up.
